He Is A Doctor After All . . .

Though today is normally an off day for me, I was back at work trying to catch up on our backlogged order situation. Because we were trying to just get the orders out as fast as possible, believe or not, we shipped the orders before we charged their cards.

But since most of our customers have been with us a long time, we figured we wouldn’t have a problem and we didn’t .

Out of almost 200 orders, we had 9 that didn’t go through. And 4 of those were because my client didn’t write the CC number down correctly, or more likely couldn’t read his own handwriting.

He is a doctor, after all.

But now we’re to the point where we’ve go enough slack that I’m able to run the cards before I ship. Which is a good thing because we found out that Jennifer won’t be back until the first of next week, if we’re lucky. So we’re on our own until then, I guess.

Since we were overdue for a WalMart run because I worked all weekend, we headed back out after I got home about 4. Our first stop of course was at Yummy Yummy since it’s right across the Interstate from WalMart. How convenient.

I did get the 9 Volt battery eliminator in today from Amazon and took some time this evening to hook it up to my TENS unit so I can run it all night if need be, rather than have the 9 volt battery run down about half way though the night.

I did have to kind of kludge it since the eliminator connection is just two 9 volt connectors on the end of a wire. So what I did was to fold a piece of heavy cardboard into the shape of a 9 volt battery and use that to wedge the connector into place. Then with a small slot cut into the battery door for the wire to exit, it all works fine. So I’m ready for the next attack.

Be sure and check out my friend Nick Russell’s latest tale in his Big Lake series, Big Lake Ninja.

Jan just finished it and said it’s great. With a lot of twists and turns, she said she never figured out where it was going until it was over. Now that she’s done, I can get started.

Check it out.


Thought for the Day: 

Thinking Caps are apparently no longer being issued, so there must be a warehouse full of them out there somewhere.
